trippi. as we do every week we look at the electoral map. info on the key. red states are romney states. blue, obama. then the pinkish lean romney. light blue, lean obama. then the yellow states are tossup states. within the margin of error. this is all based on the polls within the last 30 days. okay, karl, what has changed in the last week since we talked? >> we had 46 polls last week in 22 states. four states moved toward president obama and changed status. iowa, ohio, nevada, all battleground states moved from tossup to lean obama. montana moved from romney to lean romney. there were 11 other states then moved toward obama but had no change in status. there were five states that moved toward governor romney. but again had no change in status. >> joe, of those, what is most important? >> i mean the biggest thing is that shift in nevada and ohio. those two in particular. ohio, obviously, a big move. moving it to lean obama, it puts for the first time, i think since we started back in april, it puts obama with over the 270 electoral votes. we had that back then. it's coming clear today
" in the buckeye state. >> it's not consistent with our polling, steve. >> the romney campaign has officially joined the poll truthers. tonight, we will debunk the republican alternate reality. >> there is a fundamental error going on in the polling this year by the media organizations. >> and there's more fallout from senator scott brown's race-baiting campaign. we'll have the latest from boston. >>> and the star of tv's "dirty jobs" gets his dirtiest job yet. >> mike rowe, as you know, well, he's a guy who has made a name for himself by doing things other people don't want to do. really ugly, dirty jobs. like standing with a politician. >> i'll explain why mike rowe was standing on the wrong stage with the wrong candidate today. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. no republican candidate has ever lost ohio and won the presidency. mitt romney is on the verge of becoming yet another victim of this statistic. ohio's 18 electoral votes are vital to romney's chances of winning in november. if mitt romney loses ohio, he's going to have to win all six swing states wher

president obama may be pulling away from governor romney in the key states of ohio and florida. but is that true? we have in-depth analysis from karl rove, dick morris and the governor of ohio, john kasich. >> there is no doubt that the world is in need of a new order and fresh way of thinking. >> bill: mad man of iran insulting just about everybody at the u.n. we decided to turn the tables tonight and let miller loose on ahmadinejad. >> he is the impeerist do you df fuss. >> barack obama what do you think. >> it's all there in black and white. i hope the white part doesn't screw it up. >> our government is wiping its-[bleep] with the constitution. >> bill: new study out of the university of new hampshire celebrities saying dumb political stuff are hurting their careers. juliet huddy on that. caution, you where to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: i'm birl, thanks for watching us tonight. the status of the presidential race right this moment that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. this is is an important factor tonight because we ar
ground states. what is the best spin the romney camp can put on this? >> well, they can blame the poll numbers. they can say that oh, they oversampled democrats. they oversam pulled republicans. a couple weeks ago they were blaming the convention bump saying it was going to be a quote sugar high and it would fade. now they're looking forward to the debates as really their last best chance to make aim pressing on a lot of these swing state voters. they're saying there's still time for them to recover and mitt romney can still make his argument in the battle ground states. >> david, you have the "washington post" article talking about the debates in which you quote "republican strategists fretting over obama's recent rise, said the debates could be the last best chance for romney to deliver a decisive blow, change the narrative and steady his campaign." that's quite a tall order, david. sounds like a level of desperation there and desperation then leads to mistakes as we've seen in the past. is that a worry at all for the romney camp? i've heard some analysts say that he needs a hail mar
states that mr. romney finally sold those shares. he sold his shares the day before he appeared at this republican debate in iowa. i don't know if he thought he would get asked about them or not. now all of this it notes that he's not necessarily personally making the call on these investments. his money is kept in a blind trust. that said the idea you don't have to answer for investments made through a blind trust has been debunked on american politics. i thought this guy's argument was the most convincing on that. >> the blind trust is an age-old rouge to say you can tell the blind trust what it can and can't do. >> those rules include go ahead and invest my mitt romney bucks in the chinese oil company that calls itself a weapon and does business with iran just to spite us. while you're running for president, do that. you know, the election has already started. almost half the states in the country, people can get access to a ballot and vote by mail if they want to. you can do in-person early voting in idaho, south dakota and vermont. that also starts on thursday of this week
state voters say they do not think mitt romney cares about the needs of people like them. some of them are shockingly bad. look at the percentage of swing state voters who say mitt romney's policies will favor the middle class. in florida it's 8%. in ohio it's 9%, in pennsylvania it's 9%. whatever the romney campaign has done to gem themselves to this point, whether it's mr. romney's tax returns or lack there of or getting rich by laying off fact workers or that videotape that said half the country is lady bums and he doesn't care about them? in this reincarnation, thurston is mean. whaef it is that has done that is just killing him in the polls,every state. if the romney campaign does nothing else, they must, must, must make sure that nobody anywhere near mitt romney does that rich guy can't relate to people like me thing again. here's the romney campaign last night. >> both mitt and i have summer places up in new hampshire on lake winnipesaukee. a few summers ago was taking my chin and grandchildren to the town in the boat for ice cream. i got to the doing, looked around, there was n
that the romney campaign was sort of keeping an eye on in the hopes of maybe going in there and making that state competitive. that state, the president, has a 12-point advantage, so obviously romney has a lot of catching up to do. i had a chance to just e-mail back and forth very briefly with a senior romney advisor, and they're already talking about debate expectations for next week and kevin, who is a senior romney advisor, described the president as cy young, one of the great all-time pitchers in baseball. you can't really set expectations higher than that for your opponent, suzanne. >> we know that president obama actually won ohio 51-47%. why are they actually thinking that they've got some wiggle room here, that they've got some influence? what do they think they can do in the weeks ahead? >> they're going to hit this economic message as much as possible. we heard mitt romney talking about that earlier this morning. these polls that have come out do show that he still has an advantage over the president when it comes to who it best managed the debt and the deficit, who would cut the defici
a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all the polls show this that most americans are not happy with president obama's leadership, especially on the economy. many of the folks don't trust mitt romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to say pretty much whatever they want to sacht the moderator next week jim lair is not going to control obama or romney. he will ask a question and keep quiet. that's not a knock on will he leher. any interruptions are deemed inappropriate. the out of touch with the folks. the president has spent hundreds of
debattleground states. florida, pennsylvania and ohio, where mr. romney is now trailing by ten points. >>> plus this -- >> israel frustrate the that iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad will address the unja on the holiest of jewish holidays. will his comments ratchet up tensions even higher? live from jerusalem. "newsroom" starts now. >>> and good morning. i'm carol costello. ref rage. a lot of people sayal deba aing ruining the day. it's not just about saving face. it's about saving sunday. >> reporter: in controversy here. the winning touchdown call of the infamous disputed play was by the book. still, nearly everyone is talking trash, from the ladies on "the talk." >> feels unfair, looks unfair it is unfair. >> to republican vice president candidate paul ryan. >> did you watch that packer game last night? >> reporter: to the president of the united states. who says -- i've been saying for months, we've got to get our refs back. oh, mr. president, that is a bipartisan plea. roger goodell, the nfl commission sir trying. now from contracts with the once beloved men in stripes. players yearn f
senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor now replacing the outgoing democratic governor ed rendell, and i th r tmney campaig senses an opportunity here, but haveo advertisi dollars in. you have to back up that talk of edicti a w in pennsylvania hat the romney so far campaign has done that. i asked ayaide, well, do you have any plans to do that he said that's for us to know and for the obama campaign to worry about. perhaps setting some expectations here in pennsylvania as well, suzanne. >> all right. thank you very much. >>> i want to you stick around. just get started with politics at the half hour. we'ring to seeheate numbs on the ecomy, how it's playing out for both candidates. how high the stakes are f loo wednesday night's debate. owerteam, of course, is trying pectations. and we're going to tell you what your favorite brand of beer says about your politics. all t
, and behind in the battle gowned states so the pressure is on governor romney to change the dynamics of the debate. he's going to help that he can think on his feet and come up with real spontaneous responses, the fact that he's too scripted has actually worked against him. the president has to turn in a work man like performance kind of like he did at the convention, nothing that's spectacular, but nothing that loses him any ground. but a lot of pressure on romney. >> same question to you, wayne, on which one has the more pressure on him factor. >> it's really both, certainly given the way the race has been going, mitt romney has been a lot to prove, this could be a big make or break moment for him. but the way expectations have been set, which is to say that romney, after performing poorly sometimes on the stump and not as well as president obama which of course is lauded for his great oratory, i think people expect a lot from president obama, so if he does turn in a work man like performance, or if he falls into any of his traps, if he looks peevish, anything along those lines, he
really hear a romney ryan push back against the overall numbers in those battleground states. you don't hear that. i don't think they are happy about it. but i think they believe they are running behind and you are seeing some tweaks to the romney campaign >> today iowa game the first swing state to start the voting for the president of the united states. the polls he showed president obama up eight points in that state. now suffolk university poll shows the president at 46%. the president remind ed what wa said. >> i have always said that change takes more than one term or more than one president. it takes more than one party. i can't happen if you write out half the nation before you take office. >> i don't know how many of you out there will be voting for me. but, i'll be fighting for you no matter what. i'm not fighting to create democratic jobs or republican jobs, i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> today the obama re-election campaign released it's third add hitting mitt romney for insulting and lying about 47% of americans. >> 47% of people will vote for the president who
battleground states including razor-thin leads in north carolina and nevada and a bigger lead in mitt romney's vacation destination, new hampshire. all of it comes with a new headline from politico. in the end, it's mitt. all of us making a first presidential debate, which is less than one week away now even more critical for the governor. let's bring in "news nation" panel. david godfrin, michael and steve daise, conservative radio talk show host. thanks to you for being with me on this friday. steve, let me start with you. these new poll numbers, the head-to-head showing the president now ahead in all three states, north carolina, nevada and new hampshire. new hampshire, of course, romney's home away from home where he has a vacation spot. governor romney's favorables continue to be underwater in all but north carolina now. combine these numbers with what we've seen all week, how worried are republicans? how worried are they that we're approaching the point where it might be time to focus on the congressional races? >> i think people are getting very worried, and i had a pollster doing con
will speak to crowds in bowling green state university and penn state. as for mitt romney he will get a boost from jack nicholas in a rally in columbus and he wasted no time letting people know that the status quo hasn't worked. >> we have an ambassador assassinate 20,000 people killed in syria and muslimhood leader be the new president of egypt and iran is moving closer to closer to nuclear weapon. we don't have a president to call these pumps - bumps in the role. >> president obama is ahead in ohio state. >> trading jabs in the united nations. the u.s. in the area with 20 ships. they are on a practice to keep the water ways free from mines. iran test fired four missiles in the stateof her mos. twisters left a mess of damage and blew this semion its side. trees were uprated and barns were demolished. >> it started mouring down rain and haling . it is a mess. >> that car got the window busted out. and barn was hit. >> gretchen: people in colorado skipping right to wintertime. oh, my goodness. snow falling in the mountains and ski areas got several inches. a greenbay tv station mocking the ref
this way in all of the other swing states? >> well, you know, mitt romney, let's not just dismiss the organization that he has. when you have a handful of billionaires essentially trying to buy the white house for you, you know, you can pay for a few offices and for some folks to get out there and knock on some doors. they certainly aren't doing nothing. they've got an organization there as well. but we're proud that we have a grassroots people powered campaign. one that has folks out there, you know, thousands of door knocks and phone calls and we've got a lot of online outreach that occurs across the country. so we're counting on grassroots operations to help carry president obama across the finish line. back to the white house. >> how important is the early voting? do you expect this kind of early vote in all of these states? >> absolutely. early voting is critical. we're thrilled at the early voting organization that we have and the gop effort we have. starting in iowa today. we also want to remind people that they've got to get out, there's still time to register to vote in s
something? >> go ahead. >> craig, i want to say mitt romney has two home states where he was born and raised, michigan, and where he was governor, massachusetts. he's trailing by double-digits in both. it's as if the people who know him best like him least. i don't think this is an issue of he's got to get himself out there and have people get to know him. where they know him, he's losing. >> i don't think they recognize him. i don't think those in massachusetts recognize the inkarn nation of mitt romney now seeking the presidency. he's not the same guy. >> his positions are different with regards to abortion, with regards to gays and gun control. i want to bring you back in here. there was an op ed written by another conservative voice who sees some issues with the romney campaign. this is from charles krauthammer. it makes you think how far ahead romney would be if he were actually running a campaign. his willingness to go big, to go for the larger argument is simply astonishing. do you think if that campaign had presented some sort of monumental, some sort of major idea at this point, do
. but first, to politics. >>> mitt romney is venturing out of the swing states today. romney this hour is trying to pluck pennsylvania from the grasp of president obama with just 39 days until the election. pennsylvania's one of the states that is leaning toward obama, but not -- so, jim, we have been seeing romney confine his campaign to the nine swing states, why is he taking a shot at a state that has been leaning obama? >> reporter: yeah, fredricka, it did catch a lot of people off guard today to hear mitt romney not only at a fund-raiser earlier this morning but at an event that wrapped up here at a valley forge military academy. he said he'll win the state of pennsylvania and this state has not traditionally in the last several months been lumped in with the other swing states out there that both president obama and mitt romney are neck and neck in. we have seen a lot of swing states in recent days moving away from mitt romney. you saw the latest battleground polls in ohio and florida where president obama increased his lead over mitt romney, but just a few moments ago here at th
secretary of state for public affairs and ambassador richard williams, mitt romney's senior foreign policy advisor. welcome to you both. let me start with you, p.j. crowley. what do we do about iran and president ahmadinejad? >> well, this clearly will be one of the most compelling issues that the next president faces, either obama in a second term or romney in a first term. as the president said today, there's still time and space to work this diplomatically. he's put down a very firm position that iran will not have a nuclear weapon. i think governor romney actually agrees with that. >> richard, one of the problems here of course is credibility on all sides, and the reason i say that, i discussed with president clinton earlier the comparisons to iraq. here you have another bad guy in the same kind of region who everyone says has wmd or wants to, in this case, get wmd. it turned out to be not true in the case of saddam hussein. he didn't have any weapons of mass destruction. can the west afford to go into any kind of military conflict with iran, with ahmadinejad, and then discover actuall
at 49% and mitt romney at 47% but among likely voters in the swing states, president obama leads mitt romney by 11 points. 52%-41%. tonight the forecast is president obama will within 320 ele electoral college votes. joining me now is steve and karen. karen, the expectation game has gotten really out of hand this time. finally chris christie, for whatever reason, just kind of gave up and stated the obvious and said well, of course. you know, mitt romney has to be the big winner on this first debate. >> well, i think he was like look, let me keep my credibility in check because he's been watching what has happened to congressman ryan over the course of this campaign. but i think each man has a different thing they need to accomplish. i think for governor romney he needs to have a strong performan performance. it's not just about one performance for him. his problem is a lack of consistency. he's got to have a good wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday. every day to the election. if you see him give one good performance and the next day they're off message, it's more of what we've seen
? down about ten in ohio. even the fox news poll shows romney losing in a lot of these swing states. they understand they're in trouble. do they believe they've got a chance to turn it around? >> they do and they do. they know they're in trouble and they -- you know, they have tried a little bit to play the polls or bias game in the last couple days. but pretty half-heartedly as far as i can see. you know, they argue that they're within the margin of error in ohio. a lot of people don't really understand how margin of error works. so you can be pretty far behind and still be within the margin of error because it applies to both candidates. when something says a 4.5% margin of error, they'd have to be nine points apart. they realize they are significantly down in ohio, they're significantly down in the swing states. they know that -- they think that governor romney, the ad yesterday, they were very happy with. they think it was very -- a very effective ad. they think that they're sharpening his economic message. they know that they need to do that. they think it's still possible to w
making campaign stops in pennsylvania today, a state that barack obama carried in 2008 and the romney camp is hoping to make head way there. he attends a fundraiser in the next hour in philadelphia and then he will head to nearby wayne pennsylvania for a campaign rally at the valley forge military academy. after that romney will travel to boston where he will join paul ryan for another round of fundraising. >>> the polls give a sense of which way people are voting but it is social media that will indicate which candidate they're really talking about and cnn has new data provided exclusively by fb auto. it says people are mentioning mitt romney more on facebook in 41 of the 50 states. you see them in red there. of course that can be misleading. president obama is leading in nine states. those are the ones in blue. those are all considered swing states by cnn. romney's staff said he is focusing on using social media to drum up support. i am sure the other side says that, too. it is not just facebook. youtube, yahoo! even xbox planning to get in on the political action. allison is follow
which surprised me. the polls in the key state like ohio and florida not going romney's rate right now. >> look at the battleground states, ohio, florida, virginia and down the list. they are all going badly for mr. romney and being you look at a state like wisconsin which was thought with the nomination of paul ryan might be in play, he is trailing badly out there. now even the senate race, which was thought likely to go to the republic tommy thompson, even that's upside down for the republicans out there and current polling. all of this can change. we have got some distance to go here. it isn't looking gadd for mr. romney in the polling at the moment. >> bill: why do you think that changed since the conventions? what drove the change? >> well, i wish i knew. i'm at a little bit of a locals to understand how this detype gravity: certainly lead defeat incumbent. he seems to be doing just final. part of it was the convention bounce. part of that has faded. part is romney is clumsy and not natural politician. politics is not for amateurs. people complain bitterly about the politicians.
and romney both in the same state again today, hammering each other on jobs. but why does newt gingrich call romney's campaign a messaging failure? >>> and it is one of the most famous cold cases in history. where jimmy hoffa's body? well, a new break in the case this morning has police ready to start drilling. >>> it's thursday, september 27th. "starting point" begins right now. >>> our starting point this morning, the blown call that outraged millions. it seems to have single handedly settled a labor dispute. that's right. the official nfl refs are headed back to the field. beginning tonight, millions of football fans will again be able to sleep and rest easy. they will be able to curse and boo the real refs again, finally, for the ravens/browns game tonight. and calmed by the knowledge they won't have to see another replacement official for at least eight years, because that's how long the new labor deal will last. jason carroll, i know you're excited. he joins us live to talk about how they reached this deal while we were all sleeping. >> you seem more excited. did you see how excited he
romney win the presidency without the power of these swing states? >> no. and by the way, check out this incredible video. a tornado touches down, ripping through homes and buildings. it is all caught on camera. >> wow. a busy morning ahead. our guests include michele flournoy, co-chair of the obama campaign nation security advisory committee. tiki barber, former player for the new york giants, rudy giuliani, former new york city mayor, ben cohen, co-founder of ben & jerry's ice cream and singer cyndi lauper. >> it is wednesday, september 26th. "starting point" beginning right now. first we have some news just in to cnn. two american soldiers in afghanistan were killed today in an attack by a suicide bomber. the attack happened in logar province just south of kabul, afghanistan's capital. a spokesman for the governor of logar said the suicide bomber detonated himself during a military operation. he also said one american soldier was injured. we will have more on this developing story as details come in. >>> a big day here in new york. iran's controversial leader will deliver his fin
for the president to try to win this critical battleground state one more time. that's why mitt romney is in the state today trying to take it away from him. this state, let's be honest about this, is very critical in terms of putting together the electoral map that the romney campaign needs to win this election. and it was no surprise to see both of these campaigns going back and forth over issues of national defense. mitt ry re jt about an hour ago talking about this and talking about those looming defense budget cuts that are coming as part of that fiscal cliff that we all have been talking about coming up at the end of the year. mitt romney said he would make sure that those cuts are not put into place where, if he becomes president, we'll reverse those cuts once he gets into the oval do in virginia beach almos soons speech, president obama started his. he hadirginia smat tore jim webb introducinghi the former navy secretary. president obama pulling outhis big guns down there, and it's all about these military defense issues because, susan, that is a huge industry in this state. th
swing state polls show that the secretly recorded tape revealing mitt romney's intention to abandon 37% of the american people if elected president is actually having the effect you would expect. romney's secretly recorded words are crushing his campaign. a new poll shows president obama running ten points ahead of mitt romney in ohio, which is where abc news found mitt romney tonight and confronted him about the heavy words he dropped on 47% of the american people. >> about the people you said you couldn't convince to take greater responsibility. those are heavy words. >> what i'm talking about is a political process. i don't expect to get 100% of the vote. i hope to get 50-plus % and make sure i get the next president. >> that was his answer to the worst possible thing he could have said in his campaign, that was the best he could respond with. notice that no where in that answer does mitt romney attempt to actually repair the damage of his secretly recorded words. he simply says i'm just trying to get more than 50% of the vote. no word of explanation. no attempt of an apology to any
romney appear to be on the same page. >> that the president of the united states must make a priority of helping reduce demand in this country. >> the united states can focus on drug treatment and prevention. >> absolutely. i agree with that. >> reporter: if anyone should know, it's judge giselle pollack. she presides over drug court in broward county, florida. the idea, get clean, you may not a perfect record. pollack says drug courts ought to be a priority for the candidates, because they reduce drug dependency and save taxpayers millions. &she's g and she's got the numbers to back it up. a study showed pollack's court saved the county as much as $30 million a year over a five-year period. basically, the difference in the cost of treatment and counseling versus incarceration. >> if we can keep them out of the critical justice system at this level, then we will save billions and billions in prison costs. >> reporter: for the white house, it's a multi-layered approach. focus on education and prevention, treat drugs and addiction as a public health issue, not just a criminal justice co
